2014 Spirit Base: 231-240
#231 - Jonathan Pettibone
I've always been on the fence about the Phillies' typeface. If anything, at least it's distinctive.
#232 - Jose Tabata
I don't know the context of this kiss-blowing photo but it's too good to pass up.
#233 - Jaime Garcia
It's scary to think of all the great young pitching the Cardinals had last season and then realize that they still have someone with Garcia's potential sitting in the back of the cupboard.
#234 - Jedd Gyorko
He was a pleasant surprise as a rookie. I never get tired of saying his last name, either.
#235 - Juan Perez
I don't see Perez as having a long-term MLB career so I figured I'd get him on a card now while it was still relevant.
#236 - Felix Hernandez
I know it looks like I altered the background but really it's all those King's Court signs back there sparkling like a wildfire.
#237 - Sean Rodriguez
Didn't know he existed until I was putting this checklist together.
#238 - Matt Harrison
The Rangers really need for him to get/stay healthy all year long. They'll need to pad their lead a bit more before their annual September swoon.
#239 - Josh Thole
Another good Panini photo candidate.
#240 - Tanner Roark
This is a pretty cool angle of his follow through. He's all diagonal and scrunched up but all his limbs are kept in frame. I wish they were all this easy.
